  1. Many of Ibn Taymiyyah doctrines were based on hadiths from Abu Hurairah... And salafis heavily rely on him.
  2. I think Shias have certain advantages in regard to Sunnis for several reasons. One is the shias never closed the door of ijtihad and this allowed to developed sharia In a more accurate manner. Sunnis closed the doors of ijtihad for 800 years under the ottoman and instead they made taqlid on early scholars, this is why Sunnis today look backwards in comparison to Shias. Second is the effect of salafism on Sunnis, when Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab put the theories of Ibn Taymiyyah and Ibn Qayyim into practice and when the ottoman fell the door of ijtihad were open again and Sunnis had to make ijtihad on a undeveloped 800 years old tradition. Only a select few scholars were unaffected by this backwardness and this is some Sufis. And so many of us Sunnis needs to deal with salafis and 'othordox' guys accusing us of innovations and going against their 'infallible' salaf and sahaba.
  3. Not all Sunnis are brainless Wahhabis and Pseudo neo Hanbalis. The most authentic hadith collection is Maliki Muwatta which he was also reluctant to make, and negated to do several times. Even if Sahih Muslim and Sahih Bukhari are regarded as authentic today it doesn't make them infallible books from the infallible salaf, Imam Muslims was criticized for making Sahih Muslim "You call this Sahih?! You made a ledder for innovations and blasphemies". One of his early criticism
  4. I didn't found Sunni Tafseer on this verse. Controversial?
  5. 9:10 “ And from the Nomads around you are hypocrites, as well as from the city people, they persist in hypocricy. You do not know them, but We know them. We will punish them twice, then they will be returned to a great punishment.”
  6. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said "If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease." Abu Huraira reported that Moses was a modest person. He was never seen naked and Banu Isra'iI said: (He was afraid to expose his private part) because he had been suffering from scrotal hernia. He (one day) took bath in water and placed his garments upon a stone. The stone began to move on quickly. He followed that and struck it with the help of a stone (saying): O stone, my garment; O stone, my garments, O stone..... Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established till the buttocks of the women of the tribe of Daus move while going round Dhi-al-Khalasa." Dhi-al-Khalasa was the idol of the Daus tribe which they used to worship in the Pre Islamic Period of ignorance. Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, "When you hear the crowing of cocks, ask for Allah's Blessings for (their crowing indicates that) they have seen an angel. And when you hear the braying of donkeys, seek Refuge with Allah from satan for (their braying indicates) that they have seen a satan." Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "When the Adhan is pronounced Satan takes to his heels and passes wind with noise during his flight in order not to hear the Adhan. When the Adhan is completed he comes back and again takes to his heels when the Iqama is pronounced and after its completion he returns again till he whispers into the heart of the person (to divert his attention from his prayer) and makes him remember things which he does not recall to his mind before the prayer and that causes him to forget how much he has prayed."
  7. There is actually a lot of narrations from Omar that he used to beat badly Abu Hurairah and lady Aisha also accused Abu Hurairah of talking lies and claiming the Prophet (s.a.w.s) as his authority and Ali also accused Abu Hurairah. Even some honest sunni scholars of hadiths raised questions about certain Abu Hurairah narrations. Now I can turn blind to all those facts and accept Bukhari silly standards in grading Abu Hurairah trustworthy.
  8. I don't reject all narrations. I am just skeptical. This hadith about shaytan touching babies goes against the quranic teaching that people are born without sins.
  9. But the Qur'an is incomplete as Omar said here? I thought the stoning was from the Torah and not actually part of the Qur'an.
  10. Rationally I can't even attribute this to Omar because he banned hadith so it can be a attribution to him made much later. Proves that isnads and grading isn't everything.
  11. ['Umar says] "Now then, I am going to tell you something which (Allah) has written for me to say. I do not know; perhaps it portends my death, so whoever understands and remembers it, must narrate it to the others wherever his mount takes him, but if somebody is afraid that he does not understand it, then it is unlawful for him to tell lies about me. Allah sent Muhammad with the Truth and revealed the Holy Book to him, and among what Allah revealed, was the Verse of the Rajam (the stoning of married person (male & female) who commits illegal sexual intercourse, and we did recite this Verse and understood and memorized it. Allah's Apostle did carry out the punishment of stoning and so did we after him. I am afraid that after a long time has passed, somebody will say, 'By Allah, we do not find the Verse of the Rajam in Allah's Book,' and thus they will go astray by leaving an obligation which Allah has revealed. And the punishment of the Rajam is to be inflicted to any married person (male & female), who commits illegal sexual intercourse, if the required evidence is available or there is conception or confession. ..." In this astounding hadeeth we can see several things: •God has told 'Umar to say these things (according to him); •the verse of stoning was in the 'original' Quran; •Muhammad carried out stoning; •'Umar fears that people of the future will read the Quran and find that stoning is not there and will 'go astray' Several questions come to mind: •If God told 'Umar (or Muhammad) something important regarding the Quran, why would God leave it out of the final book? •What happened to the verse on stoning that it is no longer found in the final book? •If future people might be confused by not finding the verse of stoning in the Quran, why didn't 'Umar (or anyone) simply write it there? •Why would any later generations of Muslims accept the Quran, after knowing that the 'original' Quran had lost some verses along the way? For a believing person these questions are easily answered: the hadeeth is false and the allegations against God or the prophet are baseless.
  12. Sunnis agree in some things like we agree he did bad in cursing Ali (r.a) the problem is that we have some reports that praise the character of Ali (r.a) from Muawiyah and some say Muawiyah confessed Ali (r.a) was higher then him. It's important to note that it wasn't Muawiyah who killed Ali (r.a) but that accursed Khawarij. So there is a wide diverge of opinion about Muawiyah and it's hard to point out in this grey areas. But generally a lot of traditional Sunnis agree that he did bad things. But among traditional Sunnis we agree that Yazid (l.a) was accursed. Real Sunnis don't praise Yazid so if you see a 'sunni' praising Yazid he is probably misguided by Ibn Taymiyyah ideas.
  13. I have some sayings of Ali (r.a) from a Sunni book that relate to this. "Be good to others just as you would have others be good to you." "Show justice before justice is meted out to you." "Discipline yourself to not do what you dislike in others." "Be kind to one who associates with you; perhaps then he will be kind to you." "How you wish to be treated should be the measure of how you treat others." "Consider ugly in yourself what you consider ugly in others" "Strive for excellence, give generously, and speak kindly to people."
  14. it's interesting to point at that a lot of early scholars of Islam like Imam Shafi'i (r.a) took the fiqh in how to deal with rebels from Ali (r.a) in how he dealt with Muawiyah and the first Fitnah. But we categorize them as rebels and we do not takfeer any of them since we didn't saw Ali (r.a) takfeering them.
  15. Masha Allah. Hahhaha kinda funny and clever. See, they engaged in intellectual discourses, not labels of kufr, shirk and bidah.
  16. Yes this ayah is referring to the straight path (Islam). Not the path of those who wrath is brought down (the Jews) nor those who gone astray (the Christians)
  17. Those who believe in the Qur'an, the Sunnah and the Ahl al Bayt. Or just Qur'an and Sunnah. Depends in which person you ask.
  18. Y I don't know. Every sect have a different view. I don't have a time machine brother.
  19. Just islam. Believe in Allah, the prophets, the books, the angels, establish salat, pay zakat and do good deeds.
  20. There's no straight path after the first and second fitnah. This is all the groups and sects appeared and developed different views because of the schism.
  21. The only ones labeling kufr and shirk are Salafis and Wahhabis from Saudi Arabia.
  22. The Qur'an explicitly say believe in Allah, his prophets, books, the angels, pay zakat, establish salat and do good deeds. I think those who do this are enough to be Muslims. One religious truth is that the most important aspect of Islam after salat is doing good deeds, see all sects and groups of Islam and you'll notice the only aspect we do not differ is doing good deeds.
